Anyone who knows Bourdieu? HELP

Recommended Posts


I need help. I need to discuss if young people (from a minority culture) can choose their own identity? I got to use Bourdieu and see what he says. I, however, struggle to put his theory into perspective? Plz I hope someone can help.

Can you share a source to what he says? I'll read it and reply back to you.

What do you mean with ''choose their own identity''? As in, do their parents allow them to deviate from what they hold to be true (religion wise), or more of an individual level, can they choose which identity to take on (that which they inherit from their parents/that of the country they reside in or do they have no psychological say in this?). Be a bit more specific please.
